Free snorkeling spots in Miami/South Florida – travel

Easy spots by the beach to go snorkeling for free in Miami and South Florida

These are places where you can go snorkeling from the beach. you don’t have to ride out in a boat. Its best to go on a day when there is not much wind. It is hard to see anything when the water is stirred up. These places are very easy to get to, and the snorkeling is very close to the shore.


South Beach at first street/south point park

There are some fish around the Jetty (the jetty is the line of rocks going out from the beach) where the cruise ships go out into the ocean. This is not a coral reef, but there are lots of fish eating stuff that grows on the rocks.

Lauderdale by the sea by the pier

You have to swim out pretty far, most of the way to end of the pier. Theres a very large coral reef that runs parallel to the beach. the water is a little deep so you might have to dive down to see anything up close. this is north of ft lauderdale if you take commercial blvd to the beach.
